Unfortunately, I had to return these pants. I purchased these same pants a few years ago in a longer style. They are my favorite shorts of all time. I wear them doing water sports - they dry so quickly and dog walking -they have many great pockets for stuff. However, these shorts are cut way too short to do anything active in them. Please bring back the longer version of these shorts. I would purchase many pairs of them if I could find the longer version!!
I do not recommend this product.

We live near the beach and when we walk the beach, these shorts are the best. If a wave gets us wet they dry very very fast. Love that they are so comfortable. They are so light weight you forget that you have them on. Purchase and you won't be disappointed.
I would recommend this product.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these shorts!!! They're lightweight, comfortable, durable and they look great on! I've hiked in them and they don't restrict in any way. I've gotten wet in them and they dry quickly. The zipper pockets are awesome too! I purchased them in a size 4 two years ago and lost weight. I now have the size 2. I have four colors because they're the only shorts I own. I'm 5'1" and weigh about 110. The 4" inseam is perfect for my height. Oh, and have I said I LOVE these shorts :)
I would recommend this product.

Recently purchases these and used them on a backpacking trip. Excellent pockets, super comfortable, no chaffing and attractive fit. They run a little loose but for hiking and backpacking that seems to add to the comfort.

The fit is perfect!
Not baggy, not tight, just really comfortable to wear and they look great.
I love the pockets, especially the fact that they have zippers.
I just wish there were more colors available in my size aside from the two colors I already own.
I would recommend this product.

I am absolutely thrilled with these shorts. I purchased one pair from a Dick's Sporting Goods Store. I loved them so much that I ordered three more on-line. They are light-weight and breezy for summer; they are very comfortable. The length is also perfect for me. I love some of the bright colors. Maybe next year they can offer a pink and red colored-shorts.
I would recommend this product.

Shorts were of great quality...I just can't wear clothing sized Small, Medium or Large. Tried the Medium and Large...one too small the other too large. They were beautiful and very practical with the zippered side pockets. Oh! Color was totally awesome!

Perfect shorts for anything - running, hiking, water sports. Not too long, not too short. The pockets zip shut, I'm not worried about losing anything out of them no matter what activity I do. My pant size is a size 8-10 and a medium is perfect.
I would recommend this product.

I bought these shorts to carry my camera and wallet while in Disney. They worked great! As an added bonus, they dry quickly after getting wet.

These shorts are very comfortable for stand up paddle boarding. The pockets are placed logically and the belt prevents embarrassing "plumber pants" issues when getting the board into and out of the water. The material is light and sturdy and the shorts continue to look good after a few trips through the laundry. The smalls are plenty big enough and I'm 6' tall, 136 lbs. with a prototypical rower's body.
I would recommend this product.

I LOVE these shorts! I now have three pairs, and they are all I ever seem to reach for. They are the perfect length and fit. Material is great - wrinkle-free, lightweight, comfy. Waist fits slim and nice, but leg openings have enough room to be very flattering to your thighs. They wash wonderfully, and the colors stay true and bright. As you can tell, I truly love these shorts! I only wish they came in about ten more colors!

Have been looking for shorts with two nice sized zippered pockets to keep money, keys, cell phone, etc., when going to amusement parks. These shorts are great. Quick drying material will work well on water rides. Fit is slightly big. My only wish is that you would make these exact shorts just a bit longer.
I would recommend this product.

These shorts are great - the zippered cargo pockets are just in the right spot. I like the belt for adjustments and comfort. Also, the shorter length is nice for hiking over obstacles. You will want a pair in each color!!
